Reviews of L'Homme Parfum Intense

Fantastic scent.

Ambergris (ambroxan) is the main player here. Layer it with Molecule 02 if you are disappointed with the projection and sillage, and thank me later.

This combo is doing wonders! ;)

Love this cologne! I can pick it up right away if a man is wearing this around me. Strong, sexy, deep suede scent that settles nicely.

I really had high hopes for 'L'Homme' Parfum Intense, as the original and 'Intense' versions of YSL's 'L'Homme' really suffered in the performance category. Sadly, this Eau de Parfum concentration is also a very poorly performance fragrance.

The initial blast is a lovely mix of amber, spices, cedarwood and orange, very sensual and intimate without being offensive or over the top. This could work for both men and women. It really smells wonderful and really excited me for the drydown.

As it settled in, I got mainly amber, woods and a touch of sweetness. And into the drydown all I got was amber and subtle woods. Gone were any sweetness or citrus notes.

With even a liberal dose of a dozen sprays (neck, chest, wrists, and shoulders), I am only getting three to five hours of longevity, with about eight hours on clothes and maybe a day on fabrics.

The projection and sillage for the first hour is very good, but it dies down really fast afterwards. By the third hour, it doesn't project at all and stays very close to the skin. No one will smell you unless they bury their face into your neck or wherever you sprayed this. After four hours, they won't even smell you doing that.

For an EDP concentration, this scent is very weak and performs very poorly. The price just doesn't justify the performance for this. If it was much cheaper, i could at least rate it a neutral. But this is a premium priced designer scent from YSL, and i expect much more from this brand.

Performance is highly rated on my reviews, so I just can't give this a positive review, no matter how great it smells for the first couple hours. It seems like all the 'L'Homme' fragrances from YSL suffer from very poor performance, and this scent is no different.

It's a deeper, richer, sweeter version of the original. Opens up with a very sweet apple, orange blossom, and ginger note. Dries down to a beautiful soft suede and amber (with traces of the top notes never fully disappearing). The suede smells very natural but the sweeter notes smell a bit synthetic (like most modern designers these days).

Longevity is very good. I get through a full work day easily. I don't understand all of the complaints on here. This one is a "3 sprays and you're set" kind of fragrance. Any more and it'll be cloying.

In the designer realm, this is one of the better fall/winter fragrances out there. It smells pleasant and performs very well. The only thing preventing me from loving this one is the synthetic nature of the amber and fruit accords. It shares this commonality with most modern masculine fragrances (think 1 Million, Invictus, Wanted, etc). I'd honestly rather spend more money and buy something niche that uses more natural ingredients. For those on a budget or those that like modern synthetics, this one is a solid release that you should definitely get your nose on. I actually like this better than La Nuit and the rest of the L'Homme flankers.

Too loud for me. Heavy overdose of newer notes makes the end product barely resemble the original YSL L'Homme which I really do enjoy.

Wish the cedarwood was more present; it seems covered up by the “suede”, davana essence and orange flower accords.

The fragrance does seem a little more palatable after it fades out on the skin (which takes a long time). Overall, L'Homme Parfum Intense is a different scent concept altogether compared to YSL L'Homme, a definite acquired taste due to its sheer sharpness.

This may say parfum and it may say intense but really its..edt ..anyway that's my performance rating ..the scent..very very cute ..rose ..leather wood combination that sits as a dior homme/one million type ..a female Co-worker went nuts for this scent so I guess it hits the mark with lady's but I'd take a decant out with you tho due to performance issues. I bought a 100ml in the airport and certainly don't hold back with the sprays. Interesting fade out ..becomes citric :s...one of those clever reverse scents. Update* this fragrance is superb in the winter and really comes into its own ..I spray my clothes and this seems to overcome any performance issues. I see many simularities with armani code profumo but prefer this.
